Hello everyone! We have been delighted with the feedback on the Roadside Beanie, both here in Shetland and at Edinburgh Yarn Festival over the weekend. If you were there you may have seen Oliver in a very striking Fair Isle Jumper – which is what we are sharing today!
When Oliver was thinking about going to EYF he asked Sandra if she would make a jumper for her, so in a couple of weeks (!) she knitted up the Roadside Allover for him to wear when he got to Edinburgh. It was a design she had made before and we all agreed he would really suit the colours.
It features a mix of blues with some surprising shades thrown in and a lovely all over OXO pattern. Its knit in the traditional Shetland way – in the round with steeks added in for the armholes and neck. Me and Oliver headed down the new pier in in front of J&S a few weeks ago to get some photos and it fitted in perfectly with the fishing boats
So if you would like to knit yourself a Roadside Allover you can find the kits on our website here, we are running out of a few shades which feature in both the Roadside Beanie and Allover but we are expecting a stock delivery in the next week or so so if you see anything sold out dont panic, Happy Knitting!
OMG……that is flippen gorgeous!!! A pattern would be nice……I’m a spinner so……..
I like also the jumper board. Where is it possible to find one like that?
Hello, we sell them. We put them online every month or so to try and manage the demand.
Is it the same of this picture? The one I have seen on your shop on line is different, and apparently less easy to use.
Sorry. I have seen now on your website that you have now exactly that jumper board, which is different and better than what I bought about two years ago. It is a pity I already have that.
Its just a different style than the one we used to sell. They are not made by many people in Shetland anymore.
